Arcana Evolved: Circle Of Rites

Watermarked PDF

Creating a normal murder-mystery adventure is hard. Creating a murder-mystery for Monte Cook’s Arcana Evolved – a game full of powerful magic and memory-traveling heroes – is even harder.

Here’s where Arcana Evolved expert Soren Keis-Thustrup helps you out! Circle of Rites is a well thought-out murder-mystery that includes plenty of investigation, character interaction, thrilling action and cinematic battles. This adventure contains all of the behind-the-scenes notes and hints to help the Game Master run the adventure, including answers to potential game-breakers like loresight and scrying spells, gather information skill checks, and the akashic’s ability to delve into the collective memory.

Built upon the foundations of the Arcana Evolved game system and setting, Circle of Rites features murky politics, a seedy underground, harrowing pursuits, intense investigations, ancient creatures, and sinister magic.

Arcana Evolved: Circle of Rites by Soren Keis Thustrup, a non-linear murder-mystery adventure for 8th-level characters from Fiery Dragon Productions.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
